This is the Castle Creations Talon 25 Brushless ESC. This compact controller can keep itís cool even during the most extreme 3D maneuvers. Talon 25 is intended for use in most 400-size helicopter setups running up to 6S LiPo or your favorite 3D foamie that pulls up to 25 amps. Despite it's size, it boasts an impressive 8 amp peak/3 amp continuous BEC, keeping even the most draining servos at ease. Talon 25 also offers Castleís industry-leading helicopter functions, not to mention easy programming using the Castle Link USB adapter (coupon for free Castle Link included). Talon 25 tips the scales at a mere 18 grams!
Talon 25 Specifications:
*RC HOBBY APPLICATION RATING: 25 amps for the duration of a single 4,000 mAh battery pack with the ESC in contact with a 5 mph airflow of 25C (77F) or cooler air. Controller temperature must never exceed 100C (212F). Exceeding current or temperature ratings may damage components and may shorten the life of the ESC. Always verify system current draw at full-throttle. Decrease load or increase airflow to decrease the ESCís operating temperature.
